I first learned about Poofy Organics about a year ago, and I quickly fell in love with them. I am very, very picky when it comes to what products I choose for my family so Poofy makes it much easier for me now- everything is in one place! I can’t tell you how many times I have walked into a health food store for something like shampoo, deodorant, or even nail polish and I left empty handed because nothing passed my “test”.
What should we avoid when looking for personal care products?
Yikes! What a list! What’s even worse is that so many of the products in stores that claim to be natural or even organic are full of baloney! They can claim that they are natural or organic even if only a certain percentage is natural- and then fill the rest with junk.
I often get asked about what toxic chemicals we should be avoiding in personal care products, and honestly it gets overwhelming when you realize how much there is to stay away from. So instead of wasting time reading labels and hoping the company is telling the truth, I decided to finally become an independent guide for Poofy Organics because I can truly get behind what their main message is: to teach people that there are too many toxins in our personal care products!
So what are my new favorite personal care items?
I cannot live without body spray. It’s always been one of my favorite things, and I cried the day I got rid of my collection of toxic perfume! But I absolutely LOVE the I AM GODDESS Lemony Lavender Body Spray from Poofy.
Deodorant is probably one of the most important personal care products to switch. Conventional deodorant can have parabens (linked to breast cancer) and even aluminum (linked to Alzheimer’s!). Poofy has several different options for deodorants- sprays, powder, and regular sticks. I like the Sweet Lemon Grass MAX Deo. I’ve also tried the Lavender and now the Almond Clove (currently my favorite!).
Eye-shadow is another old addiction of mine, but it was something that I lived without for a LONG time because most “natural” make-ups are so overpriced.. I used to love bright colors especially, and I was so excited to find that Poofy has so many colors to choose from. My favorites are Blue Nile (pictured below) and Poofy Bug. Check out all of their eye products here, including mascara and eye liner!
Facial Care items haven’t really be in my routine for awhile. My skin was pretty clear for a long time. Recently, I’ve been dealing with a lot more detox as my metabolism shifts (which is so exciting!). Because of this, my face has been dealing with breakouts and large pores- yuck. So I just decided to try the Activated Charcoal Facial Soap (pictured below). I was expecting it to take a few uses to notice the difference, but within the first use my pores were smaller! I am super impressed. Poofy also has anti-aging serum, facial moisturizer, a dead sea salt mud mask, and a whole line for acne called Zippy Zit Zappers: check those out here.
And lastly- toothpaste. We simply can’t live without toothpaste these days! But regular toothpaste is full of fluoride (a known neurotoxin), artificial colors, and other nasty things that don’t have any place in our mouths. Poofy has a few awesome options for toothpaste, including this amazing tooth powder (a jar will last one person up to 6 months, and it whitens better than any other toothpaste I have tried) as well as Toddler Toothpaste!
So these are just some of my FAVORITE Poofy products. They offer over 500 different products right now, which is more than most other companies like them. Everything is made in small batches, and everything is truly amazing!
